Re: UFC 239: Changing of the Guard?

Askren watched "Bull Durham" and made up a bunch of canned phrases to use in situations.

I'd like to see a rematch.

Re: Setting up a half rack...

I think the only reason would be to have more room for kipping pull ups, since the legs will move more towards the wall. If you don't do them, no reason. I cannot imagine you won't have enough room for pressing and squatting

Re: Vibration stretching

Long ago we were told that allegedly Pavel was a practitioner or instructor for some sort of dance discipline, and that is why his initial offerings were all flexibility stuff, then abs. The original kettlebell stuff, his RKC book and vids, and even early certs, were pretty apparent that he was mayb...

These people think everyone should fit into a very specific mold, as outlined by their suggestions. And some people just will never fit into that mold.

Went to South Africa

Capetown and Kruger National Park for self drive safari type activities. SA is beautiful country, the Cape especially, just stunning.

Re: Strong Endurance

I’m talking out of my ass here, but... Since I discovered ‘girevoy sport’, I always thought it was the “perfect” way to train for the martial artist. But, for the life of me, I can’t figure out how to make it work for non ballistic exercises. I mean, a ten minute set of LCCJ is hard as fuck, but th...

No real plan. I'm mostly phoning it in for weights. I am doing some regular type cardio BASELINE CARDIO - 7 days a week. I do 3-5 miles of slower rucking with the dog, think 17 minute per mile pace. I'm trying to get that lower, but not having that much luck. Use a 20 and a 30 lb pack. This has almo...

It is hilarious how they are keeping this shit under wraps.

Re: Middle-Distance Running: Improving 3200 m (2 mi.) Time

Are you running on a track for the 2 miles? There are a few different things to do here, especially since your goal (9:00 mile v 10:00 mile) is pretty modest. If you can run on a track, so you can easily measure quarter miles, I'd start with quarter mile intervals. Week 1 8 x 2:00 quarter mile. 4 mi...
